Is AMD’s leap into the PlayStation 4 its ultimate resurrection?Posted 12:16 pm on Thursday, March 1st, 2012 by Steve Ahmad
I got to give it to Kotaku for putting things together on this highly speculated, somewhat industry-lead affirmed sourced information. It’s negligible if Kotaku’s sources are reliable or not because precedence and reputable Forbes magazine seem to have nipped this as a huge fat fact.
So what does this mean for everyone? Well for AMD this could very well indicate that they would have finally trumped their intimate friends and rival, Intel, in what was once a primarily PC GPU/CPU race. With regards to SONY’s PlayStation division this could be the game changer for all platform gaming manufactures and their tightly wound game creator families. For the gamer’s, at least for now, this is just more news that the PlayStation 4 will be brought to light with bigger and better technology performance than ever before. Since the original Xbox with its x86 processor, it looks like platform consoles are finally embracing a cross-blend of GPU and CPU performance found in a PC. At this point with AMD creating integrated breeds of GPU-CPU chips like the AMD Llano, it could very well be that this will be the future of all gaming consoles. In hindsight, if this is to become a reality, it would be another leading fact that PC and console gaming are inevitably becoming a blended breed; awaited in aspects of graphic performance. processor power, and online multiplayer connectivity.
Will we see that shiny holographic sticker that reads AMD Inside slapped on the retail box or even on the console of a PlayStation 4? Is this a precursor or stepping stone of sorts to longer life consoles with perhaps, hardware upgrade abilities? Time will tell.
